In the doses required for cortisol reduction I don't know that it would be very hormonal as far as raising androgen levels enough to inhibit recovery. You get a nice anti-cort from it 50-100mg a day, and doses need to be pretty high for it to be effective as a prohormone. That being said, I probably wouldn't risk it if I had other options that would play well into that role while benefiting your PCT. Arimistane, the ingredient in Erase, PCT Rev Black, as an AI is also a powerful anti-cort supplement. If you are using this above 50mg a day you are getting pretty good anti-cort properties out of it and even moreso if using higher doses. Another thing you can do is take 1 gram of vit c 2-3 times a day it also have anti-cortisol properties on top of all of the other benefits. Also you could use Abliderate, it says it does not go systemic but all transdermals go systemic to a degree to help with that I would put it on thin skin with minimal fat so it penetrates more easily.
